    You don't. You're misreading the claim. That's actually a dig at Verizon,
    where it's actually possible to be on their network *and* roaming at the
    same time. With Sprint, if you're on the SPCS network, you're not roaming.
    Period.

    This is not to say the misread isn't understandable, or to deny your claims
    about the coverage issues you have. It's simply to point out the actual
    context of that claim.
